I’ve spent this weeks posts expressing the importance of the role of the Small Group Coach. While it’s an extremely important position there seems to be a shortage of resources for coaches. That’s why I teamed up with Doug Franklin and Leadertreks to create a tool for small group coaches. Growing Small Group Leaders not only provides tools for small group coaches but also provides a system for coaches to follow. In this very practical manual you will find a Style Assessment that help coaches discover their leadership style so they can lead with their strengths and be aware of their weaknesses. This resource, which emphasizes the coaches role in caring for the souls of small group leaders, instructs coaches how to conduct one on ones, leader huddles and group visits.
This manual also includes six coaches huddles with topics such as:
- Characteristics of a healthy small group
- Building spiritual friendships
- Developing your leadership confidence
- And more.
All of the worksheets, handouts, and assessment are provided not only in the manual but also on a CD so you can make reproducible copies for your leaders. We hope this resource will be a useful tool in your small group tool box and help you develop more effective small group leaders for your church. We’re excited about the response to this resource, Doug informed me that it’s the #1 selling resource in this months Leadertreks catalog.
